The words one says are not necessarily as honest as the words one writes in one's journal.
Here Mr. Darcy, Caroline Bingley, and Georgiana Darcy confide their feelings about the various events in Pride and Prejudice to the pages of their journals with much more honesty than they would in conversation.
However, are they aware of the nature of their feelings, or do they deceive themselves as they deceive each other?
Both Caroline Bingley and Georgiana Darcy can take pride in their status as "accomplished" women, but how can Elizabeth Bennet with her lack of education and tutelage cause them such consternation?

I enjoyed this book and thought the device of diary entries by the various main characters an interesting approach. It was better written than many of the JAFF books I have read.
